Adult Dharma

Adults in Thekchen Choling (Singapore) engage in a living Dharma practice through the pursuit of devotion, skillfulness, integrity and camaraderie.

We interact in an informal, vibrant, and non-judgmental social setting to deepen our appreciation of Buddhist principles and find expression for these sacred truths in our hectic, ever changing environment.

Through our interactions and mutual support, we bring greater spiritual depth to our lives and in the process bear witness to the power of the Buddha’s teachings.

Singha Thekchen Namdrol Rinpoche’s teachings on Every Thursday (English) and Friday (Chinese)

Every Thursday, Singha Rinpoche engages his students in English and he does the same in Mandarin on Fridays. Rinpoche’s teachings are always vibrant and fun. He skillfully translates the Buddha’s teachings, making it relevant to our daily activities and experiences. Come join us and experience the Buddha Dharma made simple and digestable.
